[FFmpeg-devel] [RFC] Filters loglevel

Anton recently decreased the informational loglevel of many filters
from INFO to VERBOSE, with the purpose of decreasing the clutter we
currently have in the log (it has been observed that verbose output
has the tendency to make users hopeless about even trying to decode
all the noise, and thus ignoring the really important messages).

The principle is sound, on the other hand, it is not really clear the
meaning of INFO vs. VERBOSE (at least it is not explained in the
doxy), and "INFO" alone doesn't deliver much meaning as even an error
can be considered "information".

Anyway I'm thinking of decreasing the loglevel of all the other
filters init log (the one showing the input parameters), which were
not touched by that change, but I wanted to hear the opinion of other
